Optionally, you can highlight different zones of the workflow by adding workflow notes. Creating different workflow zones helps to make complicated workflow schema easier to read and understand.
Before you begin
Complete the following tasks.
- Create the following workflow zones by using workflow notes.
Elements in Zone
Start element; Initialize scriptable task; VMs to Process? custom decision
Get an array of virtual machines from a resource pool, initialize the counter of the Array and set the first virtual machine to be treated, if any.
Pool has no VMs scriptable task.
Resource pool contains no virtual machines of which to take snapshots.
VMs remaining? custom decision; getVMDisksModes action, Create Snapshot? decision; Create a snapshot workflow; VM Snapshots scriptable task; Increment scriptable task; Log Exception scriptable task
Check whether any virtual machines remain in the resource pool, check that a virtual machine meets the snapshot criteria, take a snapshot, then loop until a snapshot has been taken of all the virtual machines.
Set Output scriptable task; End element
Generates the resulting array of virtual machines of which snapshots have been taken.
- Select a workflow note and press Ctrl+E to select the background color.
- Click Save at the bottom of the workflow editor Schema tab.
Your workflow zones should look like the following diagram.
What to do next
You must define the workflow's input and output parameters.
